Celgene Corp. (CELG) on Friday said the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use recommended approval of Revlimid in combination with rituximab for adults with previously treated follicular lymphoma.
The Summit, N.J., biopharmaceutical company said the combination, if approved by the European Commission, would be the first combination treatment regimen for patients with the blood cancer that doesn't include chemotherapy.
The European Commission, which generally follows the CHMP's recommendations, is expected to make its final decision in about two months, Celgene said.
Celgene in January agreed to be acquired by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (BMY) in a $74 billion deal expected to close by the end of the year.
